Default Tinted my reverse housings

Really stretching for things to do on the Monte as of late, since I'm almost done with the car

Here'* what the back-end used to look like with the normal housings:


Then I sent an extra set of them to Flip for some tinting and here'* what the back end looks like now. When I have the free weekend, I'm going to debadge when I get around to claying/polishing/waxing

Looks nice. Thought about tinting the brake light housings too?

My 3rd brake light has the Monte Carlo SS vinyl over it, so it'* "tinted"

and my brakes are already black LED housings, I didn't want to tint those since they're already black inside the clear case.

Thanks for the compliments everyone

Debadge? What and why would you debadge? The badges i see look better ON the car. Well, in my opinion. Course, i think mine look fine too and apparently there quite a few peeps who would rather take them off.
